The Doom Patrol Covers

The original Doom Patrol was a comic book series from DC Comics in the 1960s. Created by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani, they first appeared in My Greatest Adventure No. 80, 1963, and the book was renamed for the team as of No. 86. The series ran until No. 121, 1968, when the Patrol seemingly sacrificed themselves to save the small fishing village of Codsville, Maine. They’d come back in different incarnations with different characters and different levels of popularity with readers.

But the first team retains its appeal for those who remember. So here are three illustrations by three current artists, continuing the series with issue Nos. 122, 123 and 124.
